Project registers, 1940-1942.

Proposals for projects generally originated in district offices, were described on a WPA form 306, and were assigned numbers from state registers only after review for project usefulness, availability of labor and conformance with state planning board recommendations. These registers generally include a brief summary of the project, with pertinent dates of actions taken with regard to that project. The series is filmed on microfilm rolls 701-703 and 779, and includes Official Project (OP) number series 165-31 through 265-1-31. The filming was done in 1943, at the time WPA offices and projects were closed.
